This has always been one of my favorite motto's. To me, it means: What's done is done. You can't change it, and there's nothing you can do. So why cry about it? Just move on, and look to the future with a smile on your face.
Why I haven't been able to apply this to my weight loss journey, I have no idea.
I was doing fantastic with the 17 day diet in December. I went from 190 to 176 in less then a month. Then I don't know what the bleep happened, but I fell way off track. I got so frustrated and angry at myself for gaining 2...5...10... pounds, that I punished myself by eating junk. I knew I was hurting myself... and really, that's exactly what I wanted to do. It has been a viscous cycle of gaining, punishing, gaining, punishing, gaining... for the past 3 months.
I've realized that I need to forgive myself, and stop punishing myself for yesterday's mistakes. I need to stop crying over the silly milk that spilled, and move on. I can't change what I've done, nor get back the time that I've wasted, but I can do better from here.
So right now I'm in the middle of cleaning up my mess, and learning to let it go.
